Every student in New York City deserves an excellent teacher. The NYC Teaching Collaborative is a teacher preparation program designed to provide training and support to aspiring teachers who dedicate themselves to raising student achievement and effecting change in New York City's highest-need schools.


The Collaborative Experience

The NYC Teaching Collaborative affords aspiring teachers the opportunity to apprentice in a New York City public school for over four months prior to becoming a full-time teacher. The residency experience begins in January 2019 and continues through May. During this unique, practical preparation, participants grow into effective teachers through hands-on experiences in a public school classroom, Master's degree coursework, and targeted, ongoing coaching from skilled Collaborative Coaches and program staff. 

Following the residency experience, program participants begin teaching full-time in a New York City school with continued feedback and support. Within 2-3 years, participants earn their Master’s degree and apply for initial NYS teaching certification to continue their career as New York City teachers. 

Why Join the NYC Teaching Collaborative?

Build the foundation of your teaching career through a supportive, practice-based training experience. NYC Teaching Collaborative benefits include:

  • Stipend during residency experience
  • Starting salary of at least $56,711 and full benefits following the residency experience (starting September 2019)
